Put a deck on that and you'll be able to turn the blades fast enough to take flight.

Looks neat. I'm not so sure the Chev engine will make for faster mowing since most Kohler or lawn mower engines operate at 3600 RPMs.

Only advantage of the Chev engine is that you would have enough torque to power a 6 or 8 foot mower deck.
I have an excuse. CRS.

That Nitrous bottle must be for when you get bogged down with the tall grass.

A stock Chevy SB runs at 5,000 to 6,500rpm. If you can take the vibration and the exhaust noise.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
